Budgeting by Priorities

Budgeting by Priorities is a budget process which “buys” results based on the district’s 5 Strategic Goals. The annual budget is based on how effectively programs provide results that the district and stakeholders value, rather than being based on the money allocated in the previous fiscal year. The benefits of the process include true alignment of expenditures to support the strategic goals, greater involvement in the budget process, and data driven decisions that remove the variability used to fund current initiatives.
